I don't think Romney will fix this. I know Smith leans Republican, but he is wrong. Romney will do more for Wall Street than Obama. He is used to destroying companies, so he would not think twice about screwing some poor or elderly person.
"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedies" Groucho
Politics is also the art of running for office, promising to help the everyman, taking the corporate campaign $$, rewarding your "friends" in your bid for office once elected, conforming to your parties wishes..... I could go on and on, but what difference would it make?
It is all about survival now, and the odds are squarely against the little guy who plays by the rules
